School is back in session, which means new friends, late-night studying, and early mornings. What better way to beat the back-to-school blues than enjoying all that Saskatoon has to offer? Keep reading to find out how to make the most of the new school year before the snow hits the ground!

Picnic at Rotary Park


What better way to celebrate the new school year than by going on a picnic? Saskatoon is home to many beautiful parks to enjoy and my favourite is Rotary Park because of its stunning views of downtown and close location to the river. Pack sandwiches from home or grab takeout from one of Saskatoon’s favourite restaurants (Living Sky Cafe has fantastic sandwich options!). Take a short walk to The Shoppe after to grab a coffee or a sweet treat, and don’t forget your picnic blanket!


Pumpkin Patch @ Black Fox

Pumpkin picking is one of my favourite things about fall, and this Friday to Sunday from 12 pm to 7 pm, you can pick your own pumpkin from Black Fox! There is no limit to what you can do with your pumpkin, from making a pie to roasting seeds, or busting out your carving skills, make this season one to remember by picking out your very own pumpkin!


YXE Poutine Week


In true Canadian fashion, from now until September 25th, is poutine week in Saskatoon! Try unique creations from 21 different restaurants around the city, then vote for who you think should win the Poutine Choice Award for 2022.


Fall/University Sports


One of the best parts about school starting up again is the return of fall sports games! Check out the Blades for some good old-fashioned hockey, or the Hilltops for action-packed football! Don’t forget to show your support for the Huskies and catch the different sports games throughout the whole year!
